# The measure of things

December 26, 2007 | 8 comments

Many years ago, a devout Christian assured me that the metric system is a Satanic conspiracy. At the time, I assumed that she was simply irrational; now I'm not so sure.Undoubtedly, the metric system, based as it is on convenient multiples of ten, makes computations of distance, area, time, and weight more easy, but there is more to this than meets the eye. Without getting too deeply into the conspiracy angle, it is worth noting that the people who gave us the metric system were the same ones who also gave us the cruel and bloody French Revolution and its reign of terror. Today, most people can remember, at best, the rhetoric of "libery, fraternity, equality," and have forgotten that upwards of several hundred thousand people were murdered for political reasons in a bloodbath that previewed the democide practiced by more recent fascist and communist regimes.

If we are philosophical materialists and believe that the prime reality is mass/energy/space/time, or the observable, measurable physical universe (and this is the philosophy foisted upon us by the elites) the idea that numbers are magical or that systems of measurement, the calendar, or the location of the prime meridian might affect our consciousness and health seem absurd. But to philosophical idealists, who beleve that the prime reality is mind/spirit/soul/thought/consciousness, symbols matter very much indeed.

The Earth turns on its axis every day and circles the Sun yearly, but the axis itself wobbles in a slow circle like that of a top, taking 25,920 years to complete one"Great Year." This slow revolution, which probably plays a major role in climatic change, including ice ages, is divided into twelve astrological ages of 2160 years each, and this number itself, as we shall see, is of some importance, and only works if a circle is considered to be 360 degrees, an ancient Sumerian/Babylonian convention. An astrological age is said to begin with the heliacal rising (due east, just before sunrise) of its namesake constellation, but how is that defined? Is it the first visible star in the constellation to rise due east, or some unseen star? But getting back to the 25,920 year figure, the Earth's equatorial circumference in miles is 24,901, which is disturbingly close. Is this just coincidence? Is there any such thing as coincidence? We don't know the original length of the inch (if there ever was an agreed-upon standard), so it is possible that at one time the circumference of the Earth in miles equalled the axial wobble in years.

Two thousand, one hundred and sixty (the years in an astrological age) is ten times 216. When the Sun, Venus, and Earth are almost perfectly lined up it is called a conjunction, and by the time the next one happens, the Earth will be exactly 216 degrees further along in its orbit. These are in cycles of five, and if you diagrammed the Solar System from the north or south you could depict the elliptical orbits of Earth and Venus as circles, and draw five straight lines out from the Sun through the two planets, and these lines would be exactly 72 degrees apart. Connect the points where they intersect Earth's orbit with straight lines, and you have a pentagon. Draw interior lines from corner to corner and you have that most potent of magical symbols, the pentagram, or five pointed star. Note that the human body with a head, two arms, and two legs, has five projections, hence the astrological connection between what is above (the stars) and below (human beings). The ratio of one of these corner to corner lines to any of the outside lines of the pentagon is 1.61803..., or the Golden Mean, so beloved by ancient Greek architects and approached by many of the ratios on the human body. Any two successive numbers in the Fibonacci series (1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144, etc.) approach the Golden Mean, and the higher you go up the series, the closer the approach to this irrational number. This series can be used to construct a Fibonacci spiral, as in certain bacteria, snail shells, whirlpools, and galaxies, and, extended at right angles through a third dimension, a helix, and DNA is a double helix. It is starting to look as though the universe didn't just happen, but was constructed according to a plan, and that our distant ancestors knew this and created their systems of measurement accordingly, placing them in harmony with the created universe. Could it be that today's elites have deliberately destroyed this harmony?

If ten times 216 degrees is 2160, the length in years of an astrological age, five times 216 is 1080, or the radius of the Moon in miles. Is this just an incredible coincidence, or did the ancients know the distance to the Moon and its size?

To proceed further, we need to understand a few more magic numbers. The susnspot cycle is usually just over 11 years. Three times 11 is 33, the number of vertebrae in the human spine, and mystics believe that the chi, or kundalini energy must rise up from the base chakra to the crown chakra through all 33 before a human being can achieve enlightenment. Masons consider their thirty third degree to be the dividing line between the peasants and the true initiates, and the French Revolution was fomented by Masons. The ratio of the height to any base side of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt is seven to eleven, and dividing the height into two base sides, or seven into twenty two, gives pi out to two decimal places. One of the planes on 9/11 was allegedly flight 11, and another was flight 77, or seven times eleven. Curiouser and curiouser.

With the above numbers in mind, consider the following.Twelve times forty times eleven is 5280, or the number of feet in a mile. Eleven we discussed above, twelve is an old traditional magic number, and forty represents an even longer Earth/Venus cycle wherein Venus' rising or setting as a morning or evening star repeats itself at predictable times. Note the use of the number forty in the Bible.Earth's diameter in miles is 72 times 11 times 10, and the sum of the radii of the Earth and Moon is 70 times 72, or 5040.

And our calendars are obviously way off. In most of the Western World today we use the Gregorian calendar, which replaced the earlier Julian calendar, and neither has anything whatever to do with any of the movements of the Earth and Moon. The important dates, at least for any solar calendar, are the solstices and equinoxes, which never fall at the beginning or end of any month. In 2007, for example, the summer and winter solstices are on 6/21 and 12/22, and the spring and fall equinoxes are on 3/21 and 9/23. Major holidays almost never fall on the dates of the solstices or equinoxes. The last day of the year, since most of the people in the world live in the Northern Hemisphere, should be the shortest day, the winter sostice, and the next day, with the sun beginning its "return," should begin a new year and a new month. The equinoxes should end months and be holidays (Passover, Easter, and Thanksgiving are always off) as well as the summer solstice, which we no longer celebrate. We are always just a little off, a little out of synch.

And if mind, or spirit is the prime reality, perhaps the location of the Prime Meridian does matter. Presently it runs through England, including the suburbs of London, and British author David Icke has convincingly argued that London is one of the power centers for the elites. This was agreed upon at the International Meridian Conference of 1884, over the objections of France. But should it not run instead through Giza in Egypt, through the (now absent) apex of the Great Pyramid? This structure was almost certainly a multi-purpose machine, and lines through it divide the Earth's land masses.
So we are always just a little off in space and time, with unknown and possibly dire consequences. It is a part of the price we pay for the comforts of modern life that we are often out of touch with nature, and, with all of our city lights, rarely see the stars, let alone the Milky Way. But our measurements have been imposed upon us, and we have the power to demand, and enforce, a change.
